Blurb: Violence has always solved most of his problems, but it can’t help him win over a man whose whole life is surrounded by things that scare him.

Brad Flynn had a rough start to life. With an abusive father and an addiction problem, his life hasn’t been easy. He has always been the resident bad ass and the town drunk. Even when he gets sober and becomes an upstanding member of the community, it doesn’t seem to change the town’s mind about him. If it weren’t for his two brothers, he would have no one.

His past doesn’t make having a love life easy either, but when he meets Kendrick Ashby, the local bar owner, he wants to give it a try. The only problem is Kendrick has his own problems, ones that make having a violent boyfriend impossible. Both have to decide if dating is even worth a try.

Review: Each book in the Pickleville collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

This is one of those stories that just pulls your heart out of your chest and have you in tears. To know what a father can do to a child that is so evil will have you wanting to rip him apart. To see how they got to where they are at now is amazing but scary. I came across April’s books not too long ago.

At first when I saw the series title I wasn’t so sure what to expect but I am quite pleased with them. There are many stories out there that are similar and will have you in tears, but there is just a twist to these that will make them even better.

Brad, Luis and Caden had been raised by their abusive father physically, mentally and sexually. It was not until the bastard started in on Luis that Brad knew he had to get them out. He beat the hell out of the old man, and whisked them away. However Brad was always angry and at the time he hated his sexuality. He always feared that being gay meant he loved what his father did, but it was not till he ended up in prison that he got help.

Everyone in town, however, looked at him as the drunk and bully that he had been. Even Kendrick seemed afraid of him. The one man who made him hard as hell and left him wanting.

Kendrick had been in his own hell for a while and got out. He was scared and feared that Brad would hurt him. Then he realized that Brad might just be the man for him. Brad showed him a side that he had never expected and he took the time to really look at the man. It would take time but these two men can heal each other.

This is a love story that has the right amount of love, pain, temper, excitement and danger all rolled into an amazing package. I also love the fact that the brothers are extremely protective of each other and a bit on the annoying side. I feel for the brother Luis and cannot wait to read his story. He is the one that draws me in more than the actual main characters. There is just something about him. But I think Brad is the one that pulls me between these two men. They are just the right characters for this book.

This book just grabs your attention from the moment you start reading and keeps it there till you have read every word. They will also have you laughing at some parts of the story. Although most of it is tone in a serious tone, there is a hint of humor that makes it perfect. I love how the characters are beautifully written with big hearts, but if you cross them there is hell to pay. They will protect the men they love and their family with all they have in them.

This book gave me everything I could ask for in a story and so much more. I loved this one and cannot wait for the next amazing story. I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can tell that when April puts out a book I will be there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Woohoo I have found another favorite author whom I can guarantee I will be getting all of her books if they are anything like this one. Not only are the guys hot and carries guns, but they go in a save the day. There is something about the way that this author tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off at parts of it.

Xander is not only sexy, built, smart but he carries a weapon. He was guarding a porn star that seemed to love having sex with just about anyone. To Xander it was funny but not his type of action. After a call from not only his older brother but sort of boss calls him away, he heads out to where a certain cult is. They are saying that these men and women are capturing gay men and holding them hostage. While looking, he comes across someone who will change his free life.

Aaron and his friends would not last long in their cells where they are being held. He knew when he got caught kissing a friend, that things were going to change. He was now one of the prisoners. He knew that they needed help and bad. His sister sneaks and gets the key to release them, but at what cost.

He is so terrified that he couldn’t find help. Now the part that got me a bit lost was how Aaron got out but didn’t seem to make it too far. Xander finds him and brings him to safety. Things are about to look up for Aaron, in more ways than one.

Even though Aaron had been held captive, when he is around Xander and the others he has this little problem. He thinks something and just automatically says it. This for me was a blast to read. He is my favorite character so far and I don’t see that changing any time soon. There is a lot of action, suspense, adventure and danger in this book. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more.

The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their lovers with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next story. Trust me from what I read this will be the type of story that will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: Brett is a genius scientist running from the government. For the past year he has been held prisoner in his research lab. He finally makes his escape when he learns they are moving him to a new bigger lab. On his way to the secret hide out his uncle has made he sees something large and with feathers fall out of the sky. It turns out to be a large man with large wings.

Iron is an Angelus who is a guardian to his king of Angelum. They are on Earth after barely surviving and getting away from an assassin attempt. They are now stuck on Earth hiding from inter-realm bounty hunters.

Brett is a smart man and not just in the ways of science. His uncle Paul made sure to teach him how to take care of himself. Iron is a warrior who does what he must to protect his charges, even things he may not like.

These two have chemistry from the start and its does not take long for them to get down and dirty. The sex is pretty damn steamy. I have to say wings are an interesting addition to the mix. They may be from two different worlds, literally, but they find that together they are more powerful.

This was a pretty good start to a new series from one of my favorite authors. The book is well written and definitely creative with a new take on Angels. There is a lot of information about Angelum and the powers of Angelus people. The only thing was that it ended way too soon in my opinion. It was perhaps a bit rushed. A lot happens in a very short amount of time. I maybe would have liked it a little more drawn out.

I enjoyed this and want to read more about this interesting world SA Welsh has created. There were many secondary characters introduced that piqued my interest. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is the first book in this amazing series and I would suggest you start with it. Although it doesn’t really give you an inclination on what they are going to be like. I have always been drawn to the paranormal world and when you add in a romance with sexy men then I am pretty easy. There are parts of it that are quite unique and I was pleasantly surprised by that. Although to be truthful it does feel like it was told with a fast pace. It doesn’t talk about mates which is quite different from others. However when they hook up it comes off not the way it should. It does not take away from the story itself though.

Zac left home, joined the marines and became a sniper. After the service, he was approached and basically became an assassin. He killed those who could not be touched by the law and needed to be executed. When his twin had her daughter, he came home to an unexpected surprise. He had been a football star in high school and was not what one would could call gay. He had always had a crush on his chemistry partner and helper. Brody however did not know that part of it. Now coming home, Brody has approached him for help. Help to find a missing student and patient.

Brody has quite a secret that he has known but not shared. He is a cougar shape shifter and has many different types of gifts that come with it. When he had been in school, his main goal was to go into pre-med, but he switched it. Now part-time he worked for the FBI as a profiler and needed help in finding his patient. He had heard that Zac was a FBI agent and wondered if he would help.

He had always hidden the fact that he was gay. But man, Zac comes home and he is totally out of the closet. Sparks fly every time these two get together and a killer has Brody in his sights.
I had an absolute blast reading this and look forward to reading the next book. I loved it and would gladly recommend reading it. It gave me almost everything I could want in it. It had my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end.

I only wish that the next story is longer, because this was just a teaser for me.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is the second book in this series but you need to read book one first. That is where you will meet Caleb and learn about how he got to where he was now. Now I love paranormal stories but this one was a disappointment.

In the first book you will find out about how Caleb had been with Amaya but met and fell in love with Gabriel. In the three years he was just trying to make it through life. That ended when he met his cousin. He had killed almost all of his pack and had not known about Natasha or the others. He had not even known that everyone had thought he had been killed also.

Through Natasha he finds out his mom is still alive but is in danger. He goes back to his Uncles to find out that he was a father and hooks up with Amaya once more. Deciding then that he needed the past to be fixed, he goes in hunt for not only his birth father, but the man who was holding his mother hostage.

Dmitri was an evil wolf who leads by fear and pain. Caleb needed to take the man down. H needed to make him feel the pain that he has caused all the others. He had not counted on falling in love with Tyson. Tyson was his mate, yet Amaya was his also and let’s just say it gets pretty confusing. Pretty much he is cheating on them both, but they love him all the same.

Now this is not your normal romance novel because it is not a threesome like most but they take turns with each other. It would have been a five star book had they left Amaya out of the relationship part. I can’t stand books with cheating and that knocked this book down a step. Also I can’t stand a romance story that has a female in it. I had read the first book and was pleased by it. So I took a chance on this story and found out that Amaya was in it. So I was a bit grossed out.

There is a lot of this story that was good though. It has a great story line with a perfect plot. I loved the danger that they were going through. It is like a detective story that has gone the way of the wolf. Even with Amaya in it, the story itself was quite a surprise. I was pleased with the way it was told over all. The first parts of the story tell about Anna who is Caleb’s birth mom and her husband Marc.

Then it goes into Caleb’s story which is actually where I started getting confused at. It has a twist to it that in most stories is a pretty cool thing, but it did the exact opposite for me. There was a lot of dialog and description that could have been left out. There is also a lot of darkness to the story and not a hint of humor to it. So this story like I said is good but it is missing parts that would make it perfect.

Overall, the story is pretty good. I must admit that had Amaya been taken out of this sexually it would have been better. If you are into stories that have male on male plus a female added in then this is your type of story. Once I got passed the sex scenes, which I might add I totally skipped over, I couldn’t put the story down.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Dylan is a white wolf shifter who has his future planned out especially after winning the lottery. Too bad his lover is in bed with another man and even worse they are dead as a door knob. In my personal feeling it is what they deserve. Dylan is arrested and needs the help of a lawyer. His sister introduces him to Silver who not only is a lawyer, but the Alpha of his pack. Although the pack is somewhat strange. The local doctor is a vampire and his mate. Too bad Dylan acts like a pissed off two-year old around the man.

Tor is not only a vampire, but one of the descendants to the Originals. Now in most lore they are born or turned, but the truth is they are from outer space. They like the wolves have problems with the rogues of their kind. He realizes Dylan is his mate, but has a feeling that it was going to take a lot of time and patience to show him that it is all good. Now all they had to do is to get the FBI to find the men’s killer and leave the paranormal world alone. They have their suspicions, but Silver will find a way to keep them all safe.

The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Andrew Martinez needed a change. He was sure he’d lose his mind if he didn’t get out of the city. Between living with his mother and sisters, and the stress of his job, he needed a slower pace. The day he moves to small town Pickleville, he meets the prettiest man he’s ever seen. Andrew doesn’t do long-term relationships, though.

Kyler and Andrew have one night together and Andrew sneaks away in the middle of the night. The only problem is, for once in Andrew’s life, one night isn’t enough. When a serial rapist starts hurting women, Andrew’s life gets even more complicated than if he’d stayed in the city. So much for a slower pace.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Pickleville collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. I love the way this author can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by April. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down.

Andrew has grown up with his mother and three sisters. He was a detective who just wanted peace. He decides to move to Pickleville and start a new life. What he had not expected was to come across Kyler. He can tell Kyler is unique and very special. The problem with that was he was only a one night stand guy. What he did was unforgivable and caused Kyler pain.

Kyler has fallen in love with someone who could not love him back. His heart was breaking but he kept his head up and kept going. That and a couple of drinks a night seems to help. That is until six months later, with a rapist on the loose the two men come back into each other’s sight. The passion and fire are still there, but can these two get a long in time to realize that they are perfect together. Out of this story I am more like Andrew but it is Kyler that pulls me in. He is so tender-hearted and what Andrew did makes me want to rip him a new one.

When these two get together they set the sheets on fire and cause every one a bit of friction burns. There is a bit of kink in this story that will have you hotter than a pistol. It is a very fantastic story that is a blast to read.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

I love the way Catherine Lievens can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Catherine.

Adrian lost all of his family except for his brother. He would do anything for the man and has proven it. When Gabe was kidnaped and held, Adrian had to do a job he hated to find a way to get his brother back. He was a geneticist and had been forced to turn humans into shifters. It didn’t go down the way they thought though.

Oliver had been one of those who had been shifter and Adrian had helped to make it a bit easier. For doing that he had been forgiven by almost all of the pack except for his mate. He knew that by quitting he was probably going to get his brother killed, but he couldn’t do it anymore. He knew that the pack would help him, even if it meant he was going to see his mate. A mate that did not want him and hated him.

Adrian couldn’t be more wrong. Joshua had many issues and one of them was that his sister had been kidnapped and experimented on. He had lost her, but wasn’t sure that he could be a mate to someone like those who had killed his sister. All that changed when Adrian left the company and the company hunted him down. He had to save his mate and to decide if he wants him enough to forget what he did.

This story has a bit of a twist to it that I loved. Especially the squirrel, which had me giggling through most of it.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is the first book written by Melody Lane that I have read. The story itself was pretty amazing although the way it was told was a bit disappointing. It comes off like it is written by a newbie. It comes off a little rushed and could have used some slang. It doesn’t take away from the story itself, but continues to stick in my mind. However it has great potential, but it just comes off a bit strange. I truly enjoyed it. The characters were beautifully written with big hearts and great attitude.

Ryan is a vampire and although it does say a bit about how and when, you really don’t get a clear answer on how he became one. All I do know is he hates it so much, that he is basically a test subject. He gets infusions and follows the rules so that one day he will become human once more.

While out to see a speaker, death showed up. Vampires were the target, but lucky for Ryan he had gotten out of the auditorium before it happened. He was a doctor and pretty much had it all under hand, but did appreciate the help of a gorgeous man. To his shock his old class mate was the man who helped him. A man that he had wanted even in high school.

Eric is a shape-shifter who can turn into about any type of domestic dog. He was also a gorgeous bounty hunter. His main focus at the moment was to catch a man and woman wanted by the courts. Many of the leads to the bombing and shootings have led to a group that wanted revenge against vampires.

It turns out that his jumpers were more than they thought. He was also reunited with Ryan. He had wanted Ryan in high school and now he has the chance to make it work.

Like I said these two guys are great but they come off as a bit strange or off. It has a bit of danger to it, a touch of suspense and some hot sex. The story line and plot are pretty damn good.

However it feels rushed and there is just something missing from the whole story that keeps coming to my attention. The problem with that is I just can’t figure it out. It did not take away from the story though. I had a blast reading it and look forward to reading book two.
